making me happy

Homemade organic blueberry jam.

Our new veggie patch, which is still a work in progress.

My first ever visit to the feed store. So much fun!

Reading, reading, reading.

Knitting this sweater.  For me.


Flame vine in full bloom, and full of bees.

Baking gluten free chocolate chip coconut donuts for my (almost) seven year old.

Also, this Madeline Peyroux song finds itself playing constantly in my car.  It is so perfect it nearly breaks my heart. Translation here.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”  ~Confucius

Happy weekend, friends.

    These things would make me happy, too. I used to love going to the feed store as a child. I still remember that lovely, organic smell…

    We recently got Bantam hens for our backyard. They are such darling little things and really make the place a home. Just imagine what all that chicken manure could do for your veggie patch!
